Belmont University Offers to Admit Students Displaced by Katrina

Will send tuition payments to students’ home institutions
katrina.jpgBelmont University announced today that it will admit students who were planning to attend universities and colleges in the areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and send their tuition payments to their home universities. “For students who have already paid tuition to their home institutions, we will allow the tuition to remain there. For those who have not, we will collect Belmont tuition and remit it to the home institutions,” said Belmont University Provost Dan McAlexander.


In order to give students from hurricane-closed universities ample opportunity to take advantage of this offer, Belmont will allow them two extra days, until close of business Friday, September 9, to enroll.
“We have deep concern for not only the individual students, but also for the institutions impacted by Hurricane Katrina,” said Belmont University President Bob Fisher. “We want to join in the efforts of the entire higher education community to reach out to them in this time of need.”
